To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the Answer of 19 April 2022 to Question 151053, on Local Transport Plans: Carbon Emissions, whether the additional guidance on quantifiable carbon reductions will take account of non-user emissions, such as from construction, power generation and manufacturing emissions, which are generated as a result of transport use.

The department is currently in the process of updating guidance on local transport plans.

We plan to also publish technical guidance for local transport authorities on quantifying carbon alongside the new local transport plan guidance to help local authorities make decisions on local transport interventions from quantitative assessment of carbon impacts at a strategic planning stage.

The scope of emissions for the technical guidance on quantifying carbon is currently being considered and will be subject to public consultation this summer.
